A theory of musical semiotics by Eero Tarasti( )

20 editions published between 1983 and 1996 in English and French and held by 1,846 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eero Tarasti advances a semiotic theory of music based on information provided by the history of Western music and by various sign theories. A Theory of Musical Semiotics is at the same time a study of music as a narrative art. It analyzes musical works through the theoretical frameworks of narratology and French structural semiotics, especially that of A.J. Greimas. Tarasti views other theories from the "classical" semiotic tradition, from Saussure to Peirce to Lotman, as possible foundations of musical semiotics. A Theory of Musical Semiotics provides a model for the semiotic analysis of both musical structure and semantics. It introduces the English-language reader to musical narratology, a field of inquiry that until recently has remained largely the province of European researchers

Semiotics of classical music : how Mozart, Brahms and Wagner talk to us by Eero Tarasti( )

16 editions published in 2012 in English and German and held by 1,033 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Music intrudes to our most intimate subjectivity, thus making it a privileged field to which so-called ""existential semiotics"", a new theory and philosophy developed by the author himself, may be applied. Using new semiotic methods and analyses as the fulcrum of its approaches, the volume aims to clarify why great classical composers from Mozart and Beethoven to Brahms and Wagner fascinate music listeners and lovers from all cultures of the world

Sein und schein : explorations in existential semiotics by Eero Tarasti( )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and German and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Existential semiotics is a new paradigm in the studies of signs, signification, and communication. This book develops its theory further, applying the notions of being, doing, and appearing to crucial social problems of the contemporary world, and to various so-called 'lesser arts' like performance and gastronomy. Eero Tarasti, University of Helsinki, Finland
Existential semiotics by Eero Tarasti( Book )

10 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

His theoretical ideas are illustrated with examples from high culture - painting, music, and literature - as well as from contemporary media and popular culture, including landscapes, gastronomy, novels, Walt Disney films, and post-colonial practices. Signs are examined in their interdisciplinary as well as their intertextual connections in this thoughtful collection of essays."--Jacket
Heitor Villa-Lobos : the life and works, 1887-1959 by Eero Tarasti( Book )

14 editions published between 1987 and 1995 in English and Finnish and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fully revised new edition re-establishes Paul Griffiths's survey as the definitive study of music since the Second World War. The disruptions of the war, and the struggles of the ensuing peace, were reflected in the music of the time: in Pierre Boulez's radical reforming of compositional technique and in John Cage's move into zen music, in Milton Babbitt's settling of the serial system and in Dmitry Shostakovich's unsettling symphonies, in Karlheinz Stockhausen's development of electronic music and in Luigi Nono's pursuit of the universally human, in Iannis Xenakis's view of music as sounding mathematics and in Luciano Berio's consideration of it as language. The initiatives of these composers and their contemporaries opened prospects that have continued to unfold. This constant expansion of musical thinking since 1945 has left us with no single history of music. Paul Griffiths's study accordingly follows several different paths, showing how and why they converge and diverge. In addition to the composers mentioned above, others whose music is discussed include Steve Reich, Jean Barraque, Elliott Carter, Olivier Messiaen, Gyorgy Kurtag, Harrison Birtwistle, and Gyorgy Ligeti. Publication and recording details are given for the works of all these composers and many others
Musical semiotics in growth by Eero Tarasti( Book )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The international research project on Musical Signification, since its founding over ten years ago, has sought to win new scholars to musical semiotics.

The anthology consists of papers presented in the three first seminars covering areas from music philosophy and aesthetics to the analysis of vocal and instrumental as well as electro-acoustic music, interrelationships of arts, music history, post-modernism, etc
